Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.
I'm back after a long time away and hope this is the right place to post a sort of reintroduction.
I am in a mess with tax, business and housing. This is a result of my procrastination over a long period of time.
The main urgent things I have done and need to get on with the rest of my life which I have let go. I have eaten too much, done no exercise, not had any fun and been generally unhappy and miserable. Now I am depressed, stressed out and have anxiety states and can't sleep. Yesterday I went to try to arrange counselling but this will take many weeks before it starts so I need to take action now.
So I am back.

Welcome back, Rexroth! (and journey)
Hi Rexroth and journey,
Good to see you both here again.
Rexroth, wishing you all the best with your efforts to move forward. I know you have done well in the past with making changes, solidarity!
Hi Rexroth and all my old friends
I had an urge for some reason today to drop in and say hello, and see how my old friends were doing. It's nice to see you again Rex and Vic and Mole and Kromer and whoever else I missed . . .

I wrote it in wrong place- so double welcome back! Best wishes to you on this next part of your journey
Welcome back! I remember your posts!
hugs to rexroth
thinking of you.
one of the ways I procrastinate is ...
procrastinating my self-care and procrastinating having fun.
In solidarity with you,
I left a WB msg in the daily CI forum before spotting this post so I'll just repeat how glad I am to see you. Always enjoyed reading your steady efforts to recover when we were here several years ago, and learned a thing or two about persistence from your shares.
Like you, I too have experienced the ugly progressiveness of untreated procrastination: piles of unopened mail, no idea of my financial accounts, living conditions slowly worsening, and I haven't even dared yet to look at the tax stuff. PA does help take the edge off my depression and anxiety, so I hope it will do the same for you. Best to you!
Things are happening today
Thank you Friends for support which I do so need.
It is a little after four in the afternoon and I have done most of the work I set out to do today despite resting a lot as I am not that well and can't sleep properly.
A big project of mine is buying a new flat. It might be the flat I end my days in but for the moment I intend to let it so that I can have the option of traveling and know that I have somewhere to live when and if I come back.
Nothing much seemed to be happening but today just as I start work I have a mass of info from my solicitor saying essentially that all is going well. I have a lot of decisions to make and intend to work on that tomorrow. If ever there was something not to put off this is it. What I want is almost within reach and so often in life I have stopped at this point and seized defeat out of the jaws of victory.
Will keep you posted.
So good to 'see' you
Welcome back, Rexroth! I've thought of you while you were away. Am sorry you've had a tough time of it, but am glad you found your way back.
